Q - Category-2 lists 11 types of professional engineering disciplines of which TJKM is an expert in only two. We don’t touch the other disciplines so perhaps we’re considered a niche firm. Would the Town be receptive to considering a proposal from a niche firm or are you looking for firms / teams that can do all or nearly all of the requested disciplines in category 2?

A - Yes Just make it clear as to what you’re submitting.

____________________________________
Q - If we are pursuing this contract, do we have to submit on both CAT-1 and CAT-2, or can we just submit on CAT-2?
Also, if we are able to submit as a prime consultant on one category, can we submit as a subconsultant on the other category?

A - You may submit either/or. Just make it clear as to what you’re submitting.

Q - As currently worded, we believe that the indemnity provision section 1.1/H. on page 7 of 38 of the proposal is not in compliance with FL Statute 725.08 and is unenforceable. Please consider rewording same to conform with the statute. Suggested language per FL Statutes 725.08: “The design professional shall indemnify and hold harmless the agency, and its officers and employees, from liabilities, damages, losses, and costs, including, but not limited to, reasonable attorneys' fees, to the extent caused by the negligence, recklessness, or intentionally wrongful conduct of the design professional and other persons employed or utilized by the design professional in the performance of the contract.” ALSO, Article 13 – INDEMNIFICATION of the sample contract on page 27.

A - Under review by town legal staff - 09/14/21 We agree the language should be changed.   Please see:

Q - Will teams be expected to include subconsultant qualifications (i.e., resumes, MBE/WBE/DBE Certifications, Florida Department of Transportation pre-qualification letter, professional licenses, etc.) if subconsultants are added to the team?

A - Yes

_______________________________
Q- The first paragraph on page 10 of the RFP notes that responses are due Monday, September 30, 2021. Please confirm responses are due Thursday, September 30.

Q - The first paragraph on page 12 requests the electronic response in both Word AND PDF format. Given the possibility of formatting glitches when a Word document is opened on different computers, which could potentially affect page counts and placement of content, would the town consider accepting a PDF version only?

A- The correct final date for sumitting proposals is September 30, 2021 - whatever day that is.
The town will accept pdf versions.
